A Suburban Superhero

The stuff four year old dreams are made of.

Your beloved superhero sailing down the culdesac, in the middle of your birthday party, to personally wish you well on your special day. 

Needless to say, Rex was wholeheartedly delighted, and in awe the entire time. Completely collected, though, playing it "cool" in spite of his obvious excitement because that's what you do when Batman is there for the celebration, sitting next to you while you blow out candles, open presents, or trade skateboarding tricks with all your friends gathered in equal shock along the block.

It was so much fun to see him so enchanted. This age, always one of my favorites. The magic of imagination in full bloom. All thanks in part to our vibrant Costa Rican neighbor, Jannio, who played Batman to a tee. Paid, no less, in a 30 pack of Budlight. And lots & lots of grateful little boy hugs.


  1. I have just been WAITING for this post after seeing the sneak peak on IG. This has to be the best gift ever received by a 4 year old Batman fan. And that photo of him hugging Batman *might* have made me a little teary eyed. So, so sweet.

    1. OH my gosh, that picture is my favorite, from the whole party Cassie. I couldn't see anything I was shooting because of the sun flair, so I was so happy to see I got this shot. It shows everything. And mostly, that he genuinely "believed" that day :)

  2. That pic is wonderful! Happy 4 to Rex!
